President’s Message

On August 8, 2020 I became the President of the Academy for Sports Dentistry. It has been a very humbling experience to think that my fellow colleagues, many of whom I don’t know, had the confidence in me to lead the ASD for the next year. I would like to sincerely thank you so much for providing me the opportunity to be your president.

I am so honored to follow in the path of so many great Past ASD Presidents. They have all had a positive influence on me since I first joined the ASD in Minneapolis in 1996. It was my first ASD Symposium and the only one that I have missed since then was in 1997 when I got married.

It was so unfortunate that we weren’t able to meet in person in Nashville this past June. There are four people who have had a strong influence on my Sports Dentistry path who I had planned to single out in Nashville. They are, in no particular order, Dr. Doug Lambert (Minneapolis), Dr. Enrique Amy (Ponce, Puerto Rico), Dr. David Kumamoto (Chicago), and Dr. Jack Winters (Findlay, Ohio). I wish to thank everyone else who has helped me to not only be a better Sports Dentist but also a better person.
